    Si, mis disculpas, perdón Alzinho, perdón SaraSara. No es así, ahí te equivocas. Buena pregunta. Comencé queriendo ayudar, pero la amargura de la mayoría terminó por amargarme. Adiós.

    Didnt think id ever say this.....I NEED FRIENDS

    Eh...do I complain about not being able to integrate into the US or British society? I learnt English without living in an English-speaking country. If I had lived 2 years for example in the USA, then I would accept my barbaridad. Your post is quite...populist. Hasta el chupamedias de Alzinho te...

    Not meaning specifically you Goudron, but is this typical...and then accuse Argentines of being unfriendly and not very wellcoming. Oh, on top of that some people have been in Argentina over two years and the only thing they can say in Castellano is 'muchos gracias' or a similar barbaridad.

    Long-termers, how do you deal with being homesick?

    Try to go out and make friends in BA. I think every expat ( I have been/am again an Argentine expat, but I guess it is the same thing) has a 'low' after some 2 years of living in a new country. It may help to go back home for holidays and see that everyone has an own life there...they are not...

    Word of the Day:

    @emilyr: ¡qué poronga! may be used in a similar way as ¡qué trucho!, specially when talking about objects or situations, not about people! For example: ¡qué poronga este televisor! Notice that porongo has nothing to do with that. Beware: Not all people in BA know what a porongo is and may...

    Hiking in Northern Patagonia

    Great reports, thank you Richard. By the way, the Aconcagua is entirely in Argentina and not shared with Chile, as you stated in one of the reports. No idea why, because the limit between the countries is supposed to be a line going through the highest peaks of the Andes.

    How to convert a Weber grill for Argentina

    why in the World would someone use gas instead of coal/wood to grill??? It's an honest question. I always wondered that...because the smoke gives the meat an unique taste. I admit in some countries neighbours might get upset if using wood or coal to grill, but that's not a reason in Argentina.

    Colonia 90 days almost not extended accidentaly?

    'policy'...come on, it is Argentina. You should have learned by now that nothing changes quickly and in an organised way.

    Transferring money to Argentina from the US

    You are supposed to declare cash in excess of x dollars (10000?) when entering Argentina. It won't cost you anything, just to fill a declaration. BUT: there have been cases of people mugged on the way from the airport to the city. Somehow the thieves knew those people were carrying money. Quite...
